Hi my sweets! You have been doing some truly incredible work on your self-love journey. I couldn’t be more proud of you or admire you more.
Part of loving ourselves MORE includes ushering more peace into our lives. And you deserve peace. But that’s a gift only you can give to yourself my love.
So here are two mottos that are guaranteed to bring you so much peace, if you should choose to live by them.
1) Don’t take anything personally.
2) Never make assumptions.
Far too often, we take things personally when someone doesn’t respond to a text message, email, or return a voice mail message, for example.
Or let’s say someone snaps at you, or abruptly ends a conversation.
Not only do we take it personally, we then start making stuff up in our heads and assume all sorts of things as a result (usually negative).
Talk about a disrupter of peace!
The truth is, most of the time, the reasons for the behaviors of others has absolutely nothing to do with you.
For example, when folks don’t respond, there are so many potential (non-personal) reasons why. Perhaps they are slammed with work or have personal problems going on. Or maybe, just maybe, they didn’t receive it. Or maybe they meant to respond but forgot.
And if you can live by these two mottos mentioned above, you’ll start to see for yourself the incredible personal benefits of letting go of all that useless, internal drama.
So my darling, why not give it a try, starting today?
With all my love,
P.S. If you’d like to learn more about this topic, there’s a wonderful book called The Four Agreements you may wish to check out.
